    Gen 2 Carbon Mudguard Extension

    A little gem that maybe of interest to some.

    I always put a radiator guard and a mudguard extender on my bikes to protect the radiator. I have just got hold of an "M" carbon mudguard that comes OEM with the Carbon Pack on Gen 2s, but this is actually a slightly different shape to the standard one, but the Gen1 carbon extender fits perfectly and looks OK.

    Just a little aside to this....the Gen-1 front guard also fits the Gen-2, so any alternates/extensions between the two will fit either.

    Didn’t know that. But the Gen2 OEM plastic mudguard is a slightly different shape at the back so needs a specific Gen2 extender, which doesn’t fit the Carbon one  :012:

    Confusing  :008: :745:

    True, but you can fit the extended carbon front guard from a Gen-1 R, RR or XR or a normal coloured one to suite your Gen-2. The OEM Gen-2 guards look a bit strange to me ...but each to their own.

    Great tidbit, but how about posting a source for the Gen1 CB mudguard extension?

    Thanks. That link was a rear extension, but it started me in the right direction. I've got one on order from Sling Shot Racing. I've dealt with them before, but didn't know that, for the CF front fenders, their Gen1 fender extension will fit a Gen2 fender. Again, thanks.

    I just installed a Sling Shot Racing Gen1 CF front fender extension on my Gen2; it fit perfectly...thanks for steering me to this (pun intended)...
